. >>steve: the president's latest nomination running into major resistance from both parties. but somebody is stepping in to help. wait till you hear who is funding the fight. remember this guy? he got so drunk at a flight he had to be duct taped to his seat. if you thought the pictures were bad, wait till you see the video of him getting taped up. >>brian: "fox & friends" starts now. >>brian: i wonder if that guy was going on vacation? >>gretchen: he was apparently. he was going to the caribbean to meet his girlfriend. the only problem was he was groping other women on the flight. >>brian: that and the fact he drank an entire bottle of whiskey. the thing is if he wants to look at his vacation photos, everyone in america has them. the only thing about this story is i'd love to go to iceland. >>steve: he's going from iceland to new york eventually to the caribbean. >>gretchen: iceland was the hit place a couple of years ago. we saw a bunch of people in hot tubs. >>steve: natural springs. >>gretchen: then something happened. >>brian: i think the economy collapsed. >>gretchen: we've got to ge
it was on a plane. >>alisyn: that's better? >>steve: eric bolling in for brian who is on vacation. ali is in for gretchen. >>alisyn: what have you done with your staff? >>steve: they are on vacation. >>alisyn: a lot of news. there are brand-new concerns about killer whales that freed themselves from the ice in quebec. no one has seen them since. we watched that video of a family of 12 whales struggling to breathe out of a hole the size of a pickup truck. then the wind shifted and the water opened up -- the ice opened up and the grandmother whale, we're told, led them all to safety. but now aerial crews sent to track them cannot find the whales. killer whales can swim a mile before needing air. that is about 20 minutes. we'll keep an eye on this story and bring developments as soon as we get them. >>> there is enough evidence, we're told, to put the accused dark knight shooter on trial. he is expected to be arraigned today. but it is likely defense attorneys will ask for a delay. james holmes is accused of opening fire in a colorado theater last july killing 12 people and injuring 70. >
i'm gretchen carlson. the flu outbreak is spreading more. how you can protect yourself. >>steve: call him sherrif joe biden. he tells the president forget congress. crack down on guns by executive order. will they really gut the second amendment? >>brian: what would you do? an invisible driver places an order at the drive-thru. >> hello. is someone in there? >> i'm a ghost. thank you. >>brian: "fox & friends" said they did the right thing. i'm a tkpwoefplt -- i'm a ghost. >>gretchen: first we see dogs driving cars a few weeks ago. now we have ghosts driving cars and ordering fast-food restaurants? >>brian: i've got a feeling that is a practical joker as opposed to a dog driving. later on in the show we'll get a trainer show you how to get your dog to drive a lawn mower. >>steve: do you think the after-life is interesting going through the drive-thru window? >>brian: you need a quick break but don't have time to sit down and have somebody take your order because you're a ghost. you drive through and go back to scaring people. >>gretchen: let's begin with a fox news alert. the flu

they can grow up to be the football quarterback and wind up with a girl like that. >>steve: the message, if you're not quarterback you'll never have an attractive girlfriend? >>gretchen: no. there have been other stories in the past about male athletes who hook up with girlfriends or wives and then they start playing poorly and they say it is the wife's fault. >>brian: if you're going to talk about fault, the main fault notre dame had last night is they should have put rudy in right at the end. >>gretchen: all right. we have lots to tell you about this morning. let's start with your headlines. a lottery winner comes forward to claim his prize. one day later he's dead. a month after calling it a natural death, investigators in chicago say he was poisoned. last june he won $1 million in a scratch-off lottery game. a day later he died. his death was blamed on cardiac disease but a few days later a family member asked him to investigate. tests revealed the 46-year-old was poisoned with cyanide. >> more common in literature than real life. cases do pop up. i had a cyanide suicide probably ab
for the economy, but not enough to pull it off. >> paul: steve, let me, is there a silver lining here at all that maybe the public will begin to understand that you can't reduce the deficit with a tax increase? you just can't do it. this represents what, 600 billion dollars they say over ten years, that's about 6, 7% max of what the deficit is? >> great point, paul. let me step back a minute and say that you and i and dan and eric will lived through the budget deals for 25, 30 years, this is the first and almost none of them have worked out very he well. but this is the first budget deal i can recall dating back to the early reagan years, there wasn't a pretense of cutting spending. usually $3 of phony tax cuts for-- >> there was a tax increase in the deal with extension of unemployment. and now i think the republicans are on a little higher ground as we go forward. you saw president obama in his little press conference after he signed the bill saying this is only the first of many tax increases to come in 2013. i believe the republicans are not going to budge an inch on that, i think they'r
. as steve just said, president obama is saying he wants more tax increases. there is no solution on the other side. there is no certainty out there. people are looking at very expensive obamacare and no way to pay for it. >> paul: if we can afford it after paying your tax bill, you might want to hire a lobbyist. it was awarded with $400 million in tax breaks in fiscal cliff deal. we'll tell you who the other big winners were when we come back. >> president obama for his part praised this week's huge new tax increase saying that millionaires and billionaires will finally pay their fair share under the fiscal cliff compromise, that is unless they were smart enough to hire a lobbyist. those folks managed to get their taxes reduced in the deal, as congress handed out 78 million dollars in tax write-offs for nascar track owners 222 million dollars in tax rebates forum distillers, and 430 million in tax credit for hollywood producers, and billions more in green energy give aways. so, mary, i thought this was about social justice, the rich paying their fair share. what happened? >> yes

are a low-cost iphone for emerging markets. shanghai evening news claimed the apple marketing chief steve shiller says the future for apple isn't cheap phones. apple hasn't responded to my request to clarify what shiller said and frankly i don't trust language that's been translated and retranslated. the future of apple isn't cheap ipads but that doesn't stop them from coming out with ipad minis. you can bet they have worked on a phone that would meet their standards and avoid cannibalizing the high-end iphones. if they release one, that's a bigger story. >> apple stock, a buy or a sell? the stock hovering around $500 a share. still well below its all-time high, so is it a buy or not? on the technical side of the story ennis tanner with me with riskreversal.com and on the tech fundamental side, jeff, we'll start with you. >> growth rates in china, it's huge, but i think there's a bigger story here in apple, and we can talk the numbers to death, but there's a transition going on. over the last six years apple has been this hyper growth company with an investor base that included everybody,
'll get much more on the markets coming up, but first steve liesman with breaking news right now. this is the latest read on the u.s. economy. steve, what can you tell us? >> maria, thanks very much. the federal reserve reporting consumer credit for november, consumers in a borrowing mood with consumer credit rising 7%. non-revolving credit, auto, student loans, up by 9.6% with a big rise in student loans. the federal part of this thing was up pretty strongly, and non-revolving credit was up 1.1%. student loans up by $5 billion to a record $521 billion, and outstanding bank credit card was up by 6 billion as well so banks were not shy about alleged on the credit cards. meanwhile, jeff lacquer, fed president saying growth at 2 it is is what is expected for 2013 but 2014 could be stronger with reduced risk and ending some of the financial uncertainties that have -- that he says hobbled growth in 2012. he repeated his opposition to current fed policy and warned that a big fed balance sheet means that the economy is vulnerable to even small mistakes. maria? >> all right. steve, thank
we quoted on friday, steve clemens was on our show today, quote, there seems to be an effort by israel and supporters over and over to continue to run resolutions to say, how much do you love me america? do you love me today, do you love me tomorrow and do you love me again. i am supportive of israel but i'm not going to zero game between israel and neighbors, but also have vital national security relationships with the united states let's bring in our panel. steve hayes, juan williams and charles krauthammer. steve? >> i think the quote you read is offensive. its clownish view of what people have been arguing both with respect to protecting national security but the threat that iranian poses to the united states of america. i think one of the areas in which hagel has shown himself to be president obama's left, and he has in a variety of different places, is the question of iran. hagel ruled out a military strike would be unreasonable, it would be foolish to do that. something that the obama administration despite fact i think they have taken a rather accommodating and patien
-year history of the universe is found inside a rock. i thought it was in steve's brain. >>> i'm toure. it's the year of lincoln. surprising me a little bit but more locks than a hardware store. >> i haven't seen one of the movies and if you haven't either, don't be embarrassed. you were probably too busy watching "the cycle." >>> loyal lew. the president flushing out the second term cabinet today promoting the chief of staff jack lew to run the treasury. >> so for all of the talk out there about deficit reduction, making sure our books are balanced, this is the guy who did it. three times. over the past year, i have sought jack's advice on virtually every decision from economic policy to foreign policy. >> it signals a shift in white house priorities. if confirmed, lew replaces tim geithner whose background helped him navigate the financial vie sis and new wall street regulations and lew spent three years working with wall street the background is in budget fights and matches washington's new focus. lew was an aide to tip o'neill in the '80s helping score the social security deal with pre
to washington -- >> who cared about the consumer. >> -- that steve rattner supported. >> i think i know where we're going. >> if only there were that person. you could just check them off. >> you know what? there is. >> steve didn't support him. >> absolutely. you are going to come around on elizabeth warren. you just are. who doesn't? elizabeth warren said this on the issue. aig's reckless bets nearly crashed our entire economy. taxpayers across this country saved aig from ruin. and it would be outrageous for this company to turn around and sue the federal government because they think the deal wasn't generous enough. steve. >> so i agree with elizabeth warren who's completely right. >> that's all i need to hear. you just made my morning. >> january 9th of the new session. >> check right there. >> it's amazing what a victory does. >> come on. >> something about 1,000 fathers and orphans. >> something like that. something like that. so i'm curious, mika. i'm reading "the new york times," as i do every morning. >> oh, yes. >> and i'm hurt. i am hurt because you always told me, and this is why, of
nebraska senator bob kerrey and "the atlantic's" steve clemons. senator, it's always an honor to speak with you. the president today said chuck hagel is an american patriot when he announced the nomination of the former senator from your state to head the pentagon. let's take a listen. >> chuck hagel is the leader that our troops deserve. he is an american patriot. he enlisted in the army and volunteered for vietnam. to this day he bears the scars and shrapnel for battles he fought in our name. we see a decorated combat veteran of character and strength. they see one of their own. most importantly, chuck knows war is not an abstraction. he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. >> well, senator hagel paid tribute to the men and women in uniform at the announcement today. let's listen to the nominee himself. >> mr. president, i am grateful for this opportunity to serve our country again and especially its men and women in uniform and their families. these are people that give so much to
nominee. u.s. economics editor for "the economist," and senior economics reporter steve leaseman. steve, first to you. what are the markets saying? what is jack lew's reputation in wall street and what do you see coming forward with debt negotiations? >> i think this appointment is being taken advisedly in the sense that it's a kind of wait and see. you know, from my perspective, having covered more or less -- more or less degrees, seven of the past treasury secretaries, jack lew does come to the table with a bio that perhaps has less independence in it than any treasury secretary i can remember. robert rubin, hailing from goldman sachs, salary summers was a renowned economist. paul o'neil from alcoa. there's nothing on lew's resume that suggests any measure of independence. markets want a little bit of independence from their treasury secretary. that said, if jack lew's appointment can, in fact, result in some kind of longer term budget deal affixed to entitlements, tax reform, corporate and individual that i think markets would be happy to give up that independence. the troubling is i
and do something. that's why i was sad to see steve decide not to run for re-electi re-election. we need republicans, more republicans that will stand in and say, yes, spending is the issue. we have to realize we need to have reasonable revenue in the mix. we have to look at everything. when it comes to spending, defense can't be a sacred cow. we need legitimate entitlement reform. i was on "the cycle" one of msnbc's shows, and i suggested raising medicare since we're living longer isn't necessarily a bad idea. the three progressive hosts, would you have thought i proposed treason to the american government. >> congressman, let me ask you about your next endeavor. politico pointed out, the republican party has a primary problem. gop primary voters have become so conservative, they are nominating candidates that are losing winnable elections. these should have been walk overs for republicans and would have given them a majority. christine o'donnell. ken buck, sharon angle, todd akin and richard murdoch. you add in that the right-leaning gop election for ate has attracted fringy candidates

john boehner replayed the whole thing to the "wall street journal" steve moore. the president says the country does not have a spending problem. told boehner to his face at the white house that it is all fiction. spending isn't the problem. healthcare is. get that under control the president reportedly says pretty much everything else is under control. we will talk to steve moore in a is second about what boehner said after this. it might explain this. nancy pelosi pushing for still more revenues this week and republicans demanding dollar for dollar tax hikes to spending cuts. what makes you think we will make any progress wielding this out of control when we are not. steve, why less won't be more. steve this is fascinating. tell me exactly what went down. >> i did the interview with speaker boehner on friday over in the capitol and one of the first things that he told me in the meeting. i said what was the most interesting thing and shocking thing about the five weeks of negotiations in the oval office with president obama? and he said at one point the president turned to him and

steve schmidt. he is a republican senior strategist from the mccain/palin ticket in '08, msnbc analyst. steve, thank you for being here. good to see you. >> good to see you, rachel. happy new year. >> you too. i know you are a supporter of gun rights, steve. i know you are also a political realist. how do you assess the strength of the effort to try to come up with some form of reform agenda after newtown and after tucson? >> look, i think that the ad that you showed is obviously enormously compelling. it's emotional. the whole country was traumatized by this unspeakable tragedy that took place in newtown, and the tragedies that took place before it. and sadly, the tragedies that are going to take place next. and we don't know where those will be. but the nra is a fearsome political lobby. members particularly in the republican party are terrified of being primaried. this issue is often covered through a partisan prism when it should be looked at through a regional prism. if you talk about democrats in the south, in the mountain west, and places like north dakota, and you saw the new s
people like gabby giffords come in to the debate and lorraine jobs, steve jobs' widow. come in to the debate helping giffords with her pac and saying to have an equal amount of money, perhaps more money to play with than the nra has. happy to see the explainer in chief bill clinton come in to the debate and important to have somebody like that who is a gun control -- i mean a gun safety and gun culture person like the debate you had with howard on the show yesterday. outlined the sort of cultural difference. you are a gun person. you're a hunter. you know all about guns. howard doesn't. i don't know everything about guns but that doesn't mean we can't have a part in the discussion. >> yeah. >> gun safety, reasonable gun laws. i mean, one study you cited and -- you cited but universal background checks polls well. doesn't change your ability to have the guns you want to have. and we have talked about executive action from the white house. i think it's almost certain that we'll see some executive action and the right -- not all of the right but some of the right using that as
carnes, steve taylor. >> good afternoon, mr. fonaro. >>> hi, thanks for giving me time to speak. can you hear me? first of all, i want to say that these new options that you have come up with are fabulous if, in fact, they're going to happen. but based on this report that i'm reading, i don't think that they ever will. i don't think february 1st, 2013 is near enough time to take on these new options. and i think that it's funny that february 1st, 2013, is probably two days before you're going to start digging the trench on columbus avenue. also it seems like to me, based on our future or our past business together, that this is an item to a bees us when the real serious matter is paragraph 3, which says, if we can't do options 3 or 4, we're going to do what we had originally intended. i think that's all i had to say. >> thank you, sir. next speaker, please. >> lance carnes, steve taylor, lorenzo petroni. >> mr. carnes. good afternoon, mr. carnes. >>> yes, nice of you to hear us today, board members. i'd like to underline again about the community input and the communication to the neighb
steve as well about your deep knowledge of afghanistan and pakistan and the other bordering states. >> this is one that has taken a back burner. we are not that far removed from the election. the election was about by and large nothing more than the economy and which side could do it better. as a result almost every other issue gets pushed to the side, but we have, you know -- there are realtime tables in place in afghanistan about what we have pledged to do, what we will do. you talk about chuck hagel. what chuck hagel's role in all of that, if et wants to be secretary of defense. it's a complicated issue, and it's more complicated politically, andrea, simply because the american public -- this happened in iraq. it's clearly happening in afghanistan. the american public has tired of our involvement in these conflicts. this is not something new. this is something that has been long and coming. if you look at the history in polling at least of when that happens, public opinion almost never sort of sways back up to all of a sudden be supportive and think this was a battle worth fight
. this is a long time coming. this is a very long time coming. joining us now is steve clemons from "the washington note" and the new america foundation. steve writes at "the atlantic magazine" where he is washington editor at large. thank you so much for being here. >> my pleasure, rachel. >> president obama's announcement today that u.s. troops are going to change mission, move to a support role this spring. we had known that it was possible maybe as early as this next summer before today. do we know why the president felt he could accelerate the pace today and do it by this spring? >> well, i think that the president has looked at the -- he just won election. he has looked at the political tea leaves in the united states, and there is not very much support for this. and i think he is making a very important strategic judgment that the timing, that you've got american men and women still on the front line. they're still going to be in danger, but there is nothing strategically achievable in the spring that is different than what is strategically achievable in the summer or fall. and i think for t
to the guys behind me. >>> hello, surface i'm steve kornac kornacki. america's future or enemy? fracking is here to stay. >>> does it matter whether we call him president obama or just obama? >>> and i'm going to take you inside the oscars and tell you how to win your office pool this year. guess who's ever where you want to be? "the cycle." >>> 5,924,000 since the u.s.-led invasion in to afghanistan started and today presidents obama and karzai met to flesh out withdrawal plans. >> the reason we went to war in the first place is now within reach, ensuring that al qaeda can never again use afghanistan to launch attacks against our country. if we have a follow-on force of any sort passed 2014 it's got to be at the invitation of the afghan government and they have to feel comfortable with it. nowhere do we have any kind of security agreement with a country without immunity for our troops. >> this was their first face to face since the nato summit last spring in chicago. today was focused on defining the mission and hashing out who will have what authorities after 2014. talk of troop levels
, really cold outside. >> yeah. steve paulson joins us now. what helped prevent the predicted record cold? >> the north wind. >> so strange. >> it'll be colder i think on sunday morning. that looks to be the coldest but morning lows, some took a while. overnight lows 24 to 44, frost and freeze warnings out for about another hour. temperatures 29 at napa, fairfield was 26, now 30 telling me a little breeze picked up. 26 not far from livermore but oakland 41, the city 44 and 47 half moon bay with a north wind of 25 miles an hour. san jose 37, san rafael down to 34. with that north breeze it'll be cold. we will have to -- upper 40s, low 50s. there is a possibility maybe of some scattered showers today. more than today. you can see the system on the north coast. >> time is now 7:03. we have developing news coming in from the north bay. a teen who just turned 17 years oldo was shot to death just hours ago. claudine wong is at the apartment complex. >> reporter: they are still out here. if you look behind me you can see where they set up on the 300 block of the drake. looks like they will b
rock, pay per, scissors. >>steve: what about jacks? >> these are good old-fashioned game. >>brian: we tried to hook the pocket hose on to the hose bib at our house while the water was on. >>steve: exhibit a, ladies and gentlemen, if you're curious, we were able to turn off the hose outside. it took us about four hours. i can hardly wait till -- >> what does that outside shot have to do with it? >>steve: it's all about my christmas present.
brand of the republican party. >> steve, georgette was prepared to put up with anything, as long as you could keep her tax rates down on any form of income that she has. and now they can't quite completely guarantee it for her. so what is she in this for, because she ain't with them -- >> it is an interesting cut-off date, january 13th, as ohs forred to any other years. i view the republican party as not the only divide between the rockefellers, and the conservatives. i think the moderate wing is basically known existent now, it is the conservatives who have pragmatic instincts, and i think they actually account for the majority of the republicans in the house. but they have subordinated those instin instincts, the growth, they can grab up all the dollars, steer it into the houses in the country. they are defined by the whack jobs, they basically define conservativism as sort of an insurgents, basically means conservativism now is basically defined as i oppose obama and any and all compromise. the power is there because they're intim dating. >> and some are actually fundraising over the
